    I'm thinking of buying a GHD after the great reviews.
    But there are a few to choose from.
    There's a Ghd Ministyler with smaller plates,
    GHD prof. styler wich straightens your hair with " total styling control " (?)
    & last one with wider plates.

    Don't know wich one i should buy :unsure:
    I have dry and wavy hair wich is not easy to straighten.

    Has anyone tried GHD Iron Oil & can tell me if it's any good ?

    i have GHD & hairtools. :heart:
    there is no real difference between the two.
    lots of my friends have the chi one which is also good.

    if your hair is dry & wavy then i'd recommend the wide plates.
    GHD iron oil is okay. not the best & it's a bit greasy. :doh:

    My Ghd straightner is my best beauty buy EVER. B)
    I have long hair and the amount of time I used to spend ironing it has been cut in half.Haven't tried the Iron oil spray though.

    My sister has GHD and I have hairtools......mine were half the price on the internet at £40 and they are just as good. I honestly would never pay GHD prices. GHD are sooooo overpriced!

    GHD's are amazing - they make your hair poker straight and shiny, and it looks like it's in really good conditio. Even after sleeping/ a big night out/ tying my hair up, it looks a million times better than it would if I let it dry naturally or even attempted to blowdry it straight myself.

    They do a huge amount of damage to your hair though, you wouldn't want to use them regularly if you're concerned about your hairs condition. I think they're so effective because they reach 180 degrees celsius or something ludicrous like that :shock: One of my friends fumbled hers while straightening her hair and burnt her neck....it looked exactly like a hickey :lol:

    I've heard the oil is only good for severely dry (afro) hair.

    I have seriously tough Asian hair -it's like wavy horse hair :D -and GHDs were the best money I've ever spent on it. I had Hairtools before and there's really no comparison -Hairtools work well on fine hair, but GHDs are in a different league. Also, I've seen people do brilliant curls with GHDs (although I can't manage it), something that doesn't seem to work with lesser irons.

    I second what was said about them wrecking your hair's condition though -I deep condition once a week and don't straighten more than twice a week, otherwise it gets a little ratty.

    I'm mixed race and have really thick curly hair and the oil didn't work for me at all. but i use the ghd irons with the thick plates (after i have straightened my hair using a hair dryer) and they work wonders to flatten my hair and make it sleek which trust me is not an easy job!!

    I used to have a muster, which i thought was the best until i got my GHD! I cannot live without it now! I got the limited edition professional pink ones (for breastcancer month) and the iron oil came with it- though i don't really know what this does! I think it's just like a light hairspray really, that you use before you straighten your hair. My hair is naturally very thick and curly, and with these it stays perfect for as long as i need. :heart: GHD!!

    Oh by the way, if you look on ebay you will pick them up for the same price as a cheaper brand. I got my pink ones from England for $260 Australian (about $200 US i think), when they retailed for $330. The black model will be much cheaper again. :smile:
